300,000 people at the race today. It was a spectacle, good first half, action packed second half, 3 late red flags inviting a little criticism and controversy at the finish. One crash was near terrifying when a wheel flew over the fence and barely missed the seats. Jupiter, Florida driver Kyle Kirkwood flipped over in the crash but is fine. Thankfully the wheel & tire only hit a parked car. First time a driver from Tennessee has won the race. Josef Newgarden started his celebration by jumping through the fence and into the seats with the fans. I'm looking forward to the next episode of 'Bus Bros' on his Youtube channel.

The whole race was a joke. What an embarrassing spectacle.

It was a lot better than Monaco F1 yesterday.
Not really. If the thing that makes the racing exciting for folks is to see pileup after pileup, you don't need to race 500 miles to get it. Just have a 30 mile sprint to the finish, it'll still take 3 hours to clean up all the red flag debris half a dozen times.
